My daughter and son-in-law are Ohio State grads. I saw this peg board at Lowes and thought that it would be great for his fledgling workshop. I made a frame out of 1/2 pine with the top ripped for a french cleat. The trim is outside corner molding. It took longer to paint the frame than to make it. I’d bet that other college logos are available in different parts of the country.

Looks great, did they have any with a Nittany Lion on it? I may have to modify my walls.

Hi Jim, does this mean that you bought the logo, like a big sticker? Or did you paint it?

Nice looking project,

I thought it was an Ohio State sign that just happened to be made of pegboard so you could easily cover the logo with the flag of whichever team beat them each week. <eg>

I got the pegboard at Lowes. It was already painted gray with the red logo.
